The forces of complexity, humanity, and technology are putting pressure on our organizations that can’t be met by traditional ways of working. Our organizations need to be better for their people and better for the world. This requires a paradigm shift from ‘plan & predict’ to ‘sense & respond’.
Over the last few years, I discovered that implementing agile is not enough
to solve this challenge, so I embarked on a journey to broaden my perspective. When I joined The Ready
, I was given a list of the most influential books on the future of work and organizational design.
In this newsletter I share with you my 10 favourite books on the future of work. They are in no particular order, and I’ve included links to videos related to the book, in case you prefer watching over reading. It was actually pretty easy to pick them, as I find myself recommending these over and over again to the executives I work with.
